Greek police have identified at least 30 officers who are implicated in an illegal citizenship racket, it was revealed on Wednesday.

Following a months-long investigation, the officers are said to have provided foreign nationals with illegal citizenship papers and identification documents in exchange for a fee.

Police sources indicate that the racket appears to have been led by a high-ranking officer at the West Attica Security Division. A raid on his office reportedly uncovered a safe that contained 320,000 euros ($362,000) in cash.
